Dinner last night... basil so fresh, I'd literally just picked it off my plant! A creamy pasta made possible by the addition of ricotta, coating each piece, along with ground beef, tomatoes, peas... yum. Perfect on a rainy, cool night.
Homemade ice cream sandwich. Well, not really homemade, since I bought the cookies, and I bought the ice cream, but I put them together. And damn were they good. Admittedly I first saw the idea on Rachael Ray - whom I like - but when I took a bite of the store bought cookie yesterday, the first thought that came to mind was, "Hmm, texture and taste like an ice cream sandwich cookie... Think I shall do that tonight."
My local supermarket is so ghetto that the ice cream was half melted and they didn't have coffee (a favorite of the BF's), but I had no choice. Anyway, I was going to have to thaw it a little in order to make the sandwich, so whatever.
Photo of the bf enjoying the cold treat. He was hot, I was cold. Oh well. Blurred at his request - he's not a fan of being exposed on the internet.
Homemade salsa for tonight's food blogger potluck... unfortunately I was so tired that I kind of fucked it up... I don't really know, my stomach was hurting so I couldn't really keep tasting it to figure out what was wrong. Oops. OH WELL. I AM TOO TIRED TO CARE DAMMIT. I hope they like it anyway!
Today's bento! Another new bento - Ooh, pink... pretty... yes, my favorite color. Impractical for bento though ... boo.
Dunno what's wrong with the color in this pic... sheesh.
And... today's bento! Yay!
Top tier: tzatziki sauce; baby carrots; grape tomatoes
Bottom tier: sauteed green beans with ground pork; leftover pasta with extra meat "sauce" added on top
Mmmm.... tasty! HAPPY BENTO!!!
